a what they do. the last time they were in charge, congressman ryan voted 4 and governor romney said he agreed with all of the things that were done last time around. last time around is what caused this national debt. how did this happen? when clinton left, we had a balanced budget in the surplus and things were looking good. [applause] what happened? what happened? they talk about this great recession that they and knowledge as it is fell from the sky. in september of 2008, all of the sudden this thing happened. as my little granddaughter would say, who did it? casper the ghost? they put two wars on a credit card, not paying a penny. even though i introduced legislation to pay for that war. the voted for a new entitlement program without paying one penny for it. they added another trillion dollars in tax cuts for the wealthy. what was the result. ? these are the facts. the result was by the time the rain that turned back over to barack obama and me, they had doubled the national debt in 8 years. the fourth, fifth, or six days we were in office, we were sitting in the oval office at s

, the super pak sets and in a huge wave is sumner. when romney wins, he does not have the money he needs to compete with obama. he relied heavily on super pacs to do is advertising. this is not technically coordinated advertising. trevor can get into the realities there. it had some obvious positive affect in holding parity with the president as he issued a blistering attack against romney this summer. it has shown to have clear weaknesses. both campaigns will tell you this. the super pac did not follow a simple narrative might be obama advertising did. the obama campaign built a story line starting in april that tried to portray mitt romney as a certain type of person and then they presented it as the months went on new evidence. there is the offshore tax havens, etc., and they built this story line in a swing state. the super pacs operating independently were not able to build that. you have situations in which two different super pacs would have conflicting add in the same market supporting mitt romney. one would say that barack obama is a really nice guy but he could not get the job

&a." >> tomorrow, republican presidential candidate mitt romney gives a speech on u.s. foreign policy at the virginia military institute. live coverage of his remarks begins at 11:20 a.m. eastern on c-span. >> one of the things i have heard from a number of companies and individuals i have met with is that the fcc has sometimes not acted with much alacrity with respect to issues that are pending before the commission or in delaying action on other issues. i wanted to think about different ways the commission could speed up its processes. second, i think that one of the key things that the commission can do and should do is enable more dynamic industry by giving more spectrum into the marketplace. there are a number of proposals on the table. finally, i tried to think of different ways that the fcc can remove barriers on infrastructure investment. for every billion dollars in the the private sector spence, about 15,000 new jobs can be created. from a regulatory perspective, our goal should be to remove the barriers to enable the private sector to take those risks and make those multibi

, not they have a problem and point fingers. this is a big deal. it is very dangerous for the economy. mitt romney is not sitting in the seat where he gets a vote, but he should highlight the danger of this to the economy, the importance from here to the spring, and once you get to the spring, you have to do something. you have to commit to raising taxes and cutting spending. politicians hate those things. >> i totally agree with that. i think we need to hear from the candidates that they are serious about getting the deficits down to economically-sustainable levels over the next 10 years and not allow a short-term fiscal clipped to derail the economy. i would also like the default position to be that we revert to what it says in current law. i would like that to be the default, rather than business as usual. signal would you like to hear? >> we have really fallen into a horrible pattern of only making decisions when we face a crisis. the super committee last year was an attempt at a folk crauzx crisis. now we are fiscal cliff that aspirational labeled " -- will force crisis. the thing that would

discussed would offer opportunities for governor romney or president obama to score political points. and what that argument might sound like on these issues. is there any chance that either of them will try to do something like this? >> i think it would be a reference back. because the economy takes all the oxygen out of the election with a little bit of foreign affairs, the supreme court does not play against undecided voters. it is a motivator to get out and get to the polls. you want this person to replace justice ginsberg when she retires for example. you want to know if there's any practical experience, and the obama at the lustration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. present romney might decide he would defend the constitutionality of that statute. it does seem like that has a lot of salience and presidential debates. i.t. think it will not happen. here is why. no major national political figure has attacked as publicly since 1996 or before. it is remarkable. the republicans were seeing some political profit in attacking affirmative action given the polls. th

. there are specifics that governor romney could go after. he is not. >> he's not been willing to talk about it. even some of the president's allies are disappointed with his stance on housing. they have not come close watctot they set out to do. gov. romney does not have a whole lot of detail out there that he wants to talk. he has been reluctant to talk. that is a contrast to senator mccain who had a pretty aggressive housing market plan. this is an illustration and that being less aggressive than the republican opposition wanted to be. >> we will have to leave it there. thank you both. >> thank you. >> what our "newsmakers" program with shaun donovan again today at 6:00 p.m. on c-span. >> it is the first thing an article, getting medicare costs under control. it is the number one priority. it is the most untouchable thing. that will cause more trouble than any other problem we've got this bill the, getting medicare costs under control is the number-one thing. >> the sale we also charged eight obies for their medicare coverage. -- you say we also charge of the obese for their medicare coverage. >>

, that is a patriotic act. romney stop the arms race and make this a safer world. that is a patriotic act. when we keep the peace. young men did not die a, and that is a patriotic act. those are the keys to the future. who can be the leader for the future? when walter mondale was the attorney general of minnesota, he led the fight for a man who could afford to get justice because he could not afford a lawyer. he wrote the fair housing act. he even investigated the concerns and the abuses of migrant workers. why did he do that? those were not popular causes. children do not vote. migrant workers and i exactly a powerful lobby in this country. he did it because it was a right to. mondale said he would rather lose a battle over decency than when one ever self-interest. i agree with them. this campaign is not over. for our country, for our future, for the principles we believe in, walter mondale and i have just begun to fight it. clause[applause] >> thank you very much. i would like to thank the vice president bush, of the members of the panel for joining us in this debate. i would like to join you and tha

. >> to be clear, you were saying you're not supportive of how much effort the president or mitt romney have put into this so far? you are saying you're not a fan of either one's missions? >> it is more than just that. it is their teens who work with them. they have not come up with something that works. >> neither candidate right now has a comprehensive plan that meets the six principles we're talking about with the public. in the case of the president, he does not have a plan because his plan is his budget, but his budget which rejected unanimously by the senate and house, so he has to start over again. in the case of romney, he has a plan, he has not provided any specifics, and specifics he has provided, the numbers do not add up. that is what it is important but of them to be more specific, more substantive, most solutions oriented in the debates so we can make an informed choice about who to support, so they can claim they have a mandate, and they can use the bully pulpit to go to the people to talk about what we have been talking about and that people can then be involved to help get us a
